OmniWeb appends txt extension to binary downloads Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Go to this page and right-click on the 16kb download link, then choose Download Link To. On my system, OmniWeb 5.5b3 mistakenly adds a "txt" extension to the downloaded file. Instead, it should leave the filename with its original "scpt" extension.
It's the way the web server is configured: "Content-Type" = "text/plain";

They "think WebKit gives priority to the content-type and assumes that you're going to want the extension the file was downloaded as."
Although OW probably shouldn't be adding the '.txt' extension, it seems to me that the main problem is that the server doesn't have a MIME type set up for '.scpt' (which is why you have to right-click to download it).
